See what McMinnville looked like 100 years ago

Campus and community members are invited to view historic photographs of McMinnville and Yamhill County at the Linfield College library.

The “McMinnville 100 Year Ago Project: Then, Now and Beyond” is sponsored by the Yamhill Enrichment Society, which was founded by Linfield College supporter Susan Sokol Blosser. Professor Michael Huntsberger’s mass communication students looked at McMinnville in the early 1900s through the eyes of newspapers and other mass communication of the time.

The photographs will be on display in the Nicholson Library during the month of September.

“Take a break, walk down to Nicholson, and look at these lovely glimpses of life here in 1912,” says library Director Susan Barnes Whyte. “That’s the year Oregon women got the vote, the year Third Street was paved and the year the Carnegie-funded public library was built.”
